Description

SHOP. DINE. ENJOY.

Hastings is a vibrant community located on the Thornapple River in the heart of Barry County, ideally situated between the metropolitan areas of Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Lansing, and Battle Creek. You will find downtown Hastings to be the home of quaint shops and unique restaurants surrounded by nature's beauty. Plan your visit today to enjoy our downtown festivals and events, or to just get some rest and relaxation on our nature trails and in our parks!

Named one of the best small towns by Norman Crampton, author of The 100 Best Small Towns in America, Hastings is a tight-knit community with hometown pride, and quality of life for all residents and visitors.

Downtown Hastings is home to many seasonal events.

A vibrant community, Hastings hosts many downtown activities throughout the year such as the New Year's Eve Ball Drop, pub crawls, Summerfest, Jazz Fest, Fridays at the Fountain, Hastings Live! summer concert series, Playing at the Plaza, summer children's entertainment series, Christmas Parade and St. Patrick's Day parades, sidewalk sales, Girls' Night Out, and a year-round sculpture tour. Hastings is the city that offers everything for your family and friends to enjoy a beautiful day or a night out!

Downtown is also very fortunate to have a beautiful, historical Court House and Community Square with a fountain. The Spray Plaza is cool summer fun for the kids and the Thornapple Plaza is a music hot spot for the whole family. Hastings continues to invest in Downtown creating a campus-like setting. 

Downtown Hastings is surrounded by natural beauty and full of pride.

You can live, work, shop and dine downtown, canoe or tube the Thornapple River, stroll along our Riverwalk, and enjoy picnics and a variety of outdoor recreation in our city's many parks.

Pride in our downtown is evident in the maintenance and embellishment of new and historic structures; and our streetscapes and landscaping complete with banners, benches, trash and recycling receptacles, historic lighting, and colorful planters.
